Got my hands on a Browning Challenger II and was curious what everyones thoughts are on the gun. I hear its uber accurate. Mine is a 98% quality Handgun, very clean and very nice.

I have a couple of Challengers and they are great. Not so easy to clean as fe. a S&W Model 41, but they are low weight so your arm doesn't get tired while shooting and they shoot everything you feed right to the spot you're aiming and never protest.
For your info: a magazin of a Buckmark will fit the Challenger, is not nice, but it works. But not the other way around: no way a Challenger's magazin will fit a Buckmark.

BTW: what does it mean "II"? I know the Challenger model (with different barrellenghts) and I know the Nomad, which is a cheaper made Challenger, but I'm not familiar with the mark "II"

And are you sure it's a Browning? I think mine carries "Fabrique Nationale d'Armes de Guerre"...

I will have to try the Buckmark mag, but I don't think it will work. My daughter has a Challenger II, and I have one defunct worn-out mag and one good one for it. I've been having trouble finding mags for 4 years now. The earlier model challenger mags are different and won't work. This is why I doubt the Buckmark will work (since it works for your, earlier, Challenger).

EXTREMELY accurate, at least in Tessa's hands. Hers has been set up with a heavy spring, and it just loves CCI Mini-Mag ammo. Cycles VERY quickly. Still have a couple boxes of that left, then it's driving and searching again. DAMN Massachusetts - NO shipping ammo to MA.
